Setting Up a MFL Football League for 1st Time

Recommended Posts

Mostly due to the recommendations of many people here at The Huddle I have decided to take the leap of faith and switch the big money local league that I commish from cbssportsline to myfantasyleague. I did start the very basic setup of a MFL league site. All I’ve really done is put in team names, owner names and changed the skin other than that I haven’t done any scoring or roster set up yet. Rather than go over there and kill myself trying to figure out all the details that may not be very obvious, I thought I would ask for help right from the get go. I am going to post my league rules below. If any MFL commish’s have any advice they would like to give me before I enter onto this daunting task I would very much appreciate it. Also, just a couple things I want to point out about my league that may be somewhat different than the norm is that it is an IDP league, it is a kepper league but players can only be kept for 1 year and 1 player must be kept from after round 5 and 1 player from after round 12 so 2 players total and I like to use fractions for determine yards so passing yards are broken down into .05pts per yard and rush/rec yards are broken down to .10 per yard therefore 20 yards passing will equate to 1 pt and 10 yards rush/rec will equate to 1 point. Also, I’m big with bonuses. Bonuses are given for big plays and for big games. Again, It is an IDP league so anyone’s that commishs a MFL IDP league you advise is especially welcomed. Thanks in advance. Here are my rules from sportsline……

 

Player Pool: AFC and NFC Players.

So what you are saying is you want one of us to set all that up for you. :D:D

 

Yep and the wife is out of town this wekend so I could use some help with dinner, diapers and laundry

 

All joking aside, I guess my 2 main questions are can the bonuses be done the way I have them set up on sportsline for both big play and end of game totals? and can fractions be used for determin yardage points . I hate that 29 yards = 2 pts and and 31 yards = 3 points crap.

Scoring is decimal, from X to 0.xxx

Tackles can be doneand so can assists.

The bonus is probably just defining a range, that is:

1pt per tackle 1-4

3 pts per 5-7

4 pts 8-10

and so on.

Short answer to both of your questions are yes and yes.

 

Your best bet is to go in and try set up what you want, then you can post on the MFL Customer helping customers board and you will get the help you need. You couls also submit a support ticket and Kevin or Mike will help you out, but you will get just as good help from the guys on the boards there and let Kevin and Mike work on the sitewide issues :D

Yup, there are abundant helps available to you. Between the discussion forums and online helps, you should be able to resolve any issues you're having. And if not, just submit a ticket, and they'll fix things pronto.
